Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun

This was one of my favorite views of the Parc Monceau, mysterious and romantic, quiet and tranquil... I had a book of Atget's photographs (edited by Jackie O, no less), that I lost in my fire of '98.

On this, the hottest day of the week, here in the middle of the bustling city a half a world away, I can't help but hear Erik Satie as I
daydream away the afternoon...

I've fallen into the habit of asking friends on their way to Paris to drop by the Parc Monceau for me to say hello... That and Rue du Dragon and the Pont Alexander are among my favorite places to walk in Paris.
